I just saw a neat video posted by MusFormation.com. This band, New Load, uses a laptop and Pro Tools to replace heavy gear, have complete control over their sound, and always have great sounding live recordings. Check out this video:
Wow, I’m tempted by this setup because my 8×10 Ampeg cab is god awful heavy. But also, I wouldn’t have to rent a UHaul trailer for gear when going on tour.
On the other hand, I have the worst luck with technology. I’m on my second Presonus Firestudio, and now it’s acting up. I can just see someone throwing a drink and destroying my expensive laptop.
Any else try anything like this?
